I just finished reading on my Kindle a mystery TO DIE FOR by Lisa Gray (release date is August 1st 2023). I liked it a lot. The only thing that I struggled with a bit — and this is totally my fault and not the authors — is keeping the fairly large cast characters and suspects straight. But that’s typical for me as I sometimes don’t retain the names of characters but I remember traits so I usually sort it out. I didn’t love the ending as much as I’d hoped, but I still enjoyed reading the book and guessing who the killer was. I thought the author did a good job.
In audio books, I’m loving a young adult dystopian set in Southern CA about the water taps going suddenly dry. This hits close to home for me, so that may be part of the love. The title is DRY by Neal Shusterman and Jarod Shusterman. One of the things that draws me in is seeing is human nature playing out as they face a developing tragedy through the eyes of these young adults — who themselves are being forced to choose who they will become in the moment of crises.
So that’s what I’m reading and listening to, what about you?
